Platforms to check out for some great travel options for a budgeted trip:

Travelling is something which relaxes the mind and body. It gives us a way to explore the world, meet new people, look at the mesmerising sites and release stress. While everyone might want to pack their bags and just leave for a trip right away, one thing that makes us take our steps back is money. While planning a trip, one has to set a budget and abide by it. Not for every trip, one can afford to spend thousands. Therefore, it is important to learn the art of managing a budget while enjoying your trip to the fullest.

To make it adventurous and budget friendly one can look to rent a bike or get a self-drive car or take a bus for short journeys, consider alternative routes, hostels or budgeted hotels to manage the expenses.

Zostel, being a team of highly motivated professionals from top B-schools and T-schools of the country came together to change the status quo in this stale market sector and to create a fresh, new market segment of backpacker hostels in India. The core theme of all the Zostels has been to provide a safe, hygienic, centrally located and affordable accommodation wherein travelers can come together and share their stories while having a good time. Zostel also promotes micro entrepreneurship as almost all the Zostels are run by handpicked, motivated local entrepreneurs on a franchise model.

Since early 2017, in addition to providing social accommodation, Zostel has come up with a new segment – Zostel Escape – wherein we try to provide local, authentic experiences to the guests. These experiences are again handpicked and conducted by the local people and are intended to take the guests beyond the obvious and touristy destinations and experiences. With time, Zostel Escape will be rolled out across all Zostels.
